CLEVELAND– It was an emotional moment for the newest member of the Cleveland Browns.
The orange and brown selected Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday night.
Mayfield wasn’t at the draft festivities in Arlington, Texas with his fellow first-round prospects. Instead, he was at home surrounded by family and friends when he got the phone call.
“When we called him up on the phone – I will say this and he is going to get embarrassed and mad at me tomorrow –here is how humble he is, he was in tears. He was so excited. That to me speaks volumes of how much he cares and how passionate he is about this game. He is excited to be here,” said John Doresy, Browns general manager.
